Cynthia Crossley Wins Architectural Digest's "Best Living Room 2009"

Award Recognizes Rising Designer's Lifestyle-Based, Southern Style

LINCOLN PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Cynthia Crossley, CEO of Cynthia Crossley Interior Designs, LLC, announces that the readers of Architectural Digest, the authoritative publication in design and architecture, voted her the winner of "Best Living Room 2009" over 150 other entries. Info about Ms. Crossley and this prestigious award are found at

Said Crossley: "This award is a unique honor, and I am grateful to the discerning readers of Architectural Digest for recognizing my work." Crossley, who designed all of the furniture for the award-winning living room, explained her approach: "I designed this room for clients who love to entertain and always want their guests to feel at home. Working with Century and Drexel Heritage, using a mix of Beacon Hill, Robert Allen, and Kravet fabrics, I employed different textures for layering." Crossley's design inspirations come from several sources: her native South, movies like "The Holiday" and "Something's Gotta Give," and the styles of California and the Hamptons. In the near future, Crossley plans to design her own line of furniture.

Rob and Terri Rakusin, owners of the award-winning living room, opined: "After Cynthia helped create our dream home in Maui, we hired her to duplicate her magic in our redesigned home in Atlanta. Everyone loves her work, and, obviously, the Architectural Digest readers agree!"
